Following closely on the heels of last week’s carrier changes, Cricket Wireless on Friday adjusted its own prepaid rate plans. Now, as part of the Basic Plan, customers will receive up to 2.5GB of high speed data, up from the normal allotment of 1 GB per month. Cricket will also provide a $5 discount per month if you sign up for the auto-pay service, bringing its Basic Plan down to $35 per month.
Cricket is also offering, for a limited time, an Advanced Plan for $60 (or $55 on auto-pay) which includes 20GB of data. The catch here is that you need to have an LTE-capable smartphone.
The new rate plans take effect immediately; Cricket will provide one month of free service to anyone who signs up for the Smart, Pro, or Advanced.Plan.
